we have managed to create a portable dental office that asks for no pay, no social security and no donations

Strengths: Targeting oral health education and emergency treatment of especially mentally handicapped children, we have treated them in their own schools in the presence of their parents and most important of all their teachers, because in a modern clinic or a hospital, not even half of those children would open their mouths before dentists

Extra information: We have worked in 221 centers and travelled over 57,590 km since 2001 and 889 intern dentists have practiced field dentistry on these trips. They have treated 8,900 of the mentally handicapped and 6,100 school age children.Thousands of filling, extractions and scalings were done and oral hygiene instructions were given to almost all of their patients with this portable field dentist clinic. There were no request for any pay, social security and donations.
